As with the other side stories in this collection, there will be spoilers if you aren’t familiar with the character and MMO’s plot so far. Each story is designed to help lead up to the next expansion, Endwalker.
As a reminder, Artoirel is the head of Ishgard’s House Fortemps in FFXIV. He first appeared in the MMO’s Heavensward expansion.
